Mumbai, Sept. 10 -- Recently, Shraddha Kapoor and Salman Khan were in the news, owing to their run-ins with press photographers. Here, Shahid Kapoor opens up about how he handles being chased around by shutterbugs.

It's increasing now - photographers turn up everywhere and start clicking pictures. So, instinctively, it's irritating. You feel like, 'It's my personal space. If you guys come everywhere, I will die of claustrophobia.' But I understand it's their job. I am doing my job, and they are doing theirs. There are days when I feel that somebody was hallucinating and wrote it (the story).

It's disturbing at times because you're like, 'What's this? Where is this from?', but nine out of 10 times, I don't get serious about it, and take it with a smile or a smirk. I am an actor, so such things are going to happen.

And now, I have been in the industry for 11 years. I respect every department of the industry. Eventually, this is where we are, and this is the way we function. A little bit of tussle will keep going on. Sometimes, I go on the 13th floor (where Pankaj Kapur stays) and I see my dad in a grumpy mood. When I ask him what happened, he tells me, 'What c**p they have written. Why do they write such things only about you?' He gets angry (laughs). So, I have to pacify him, saying, 'Dad, you should not take these things seriously.'
